Hi KyleMoriaty,


Welcome to the Support Community!

Please try to back up your data and perform a clean reinstall of your BlackBerry® Device Software to rule out any possible software issue that may be causing this. For further instructions, please see the following KB articles.

For Windows®: "How to perform a clean reload of the BlackBerry Device Software for Windows" http://bbry.lv/GI9beY
For Mac: "Perform a clean reload of BlackBerry smartphone application software using BlackBerry Desktop Software on a Mac computer" http://bbry.lv/J0UN1U

Hope this helps.
